This evil world

Mike V.B.:
" this evil world where God is spurned more than honored."

I am hearing this sentiment quite a lot these days and I must admit, it perplexes me. How do you see God as being spurned? I don't have time to go find the research at the moment, but we are currently seeing people seeking spiritual answers (for lack of a better term) in greater and greater numbers.

If you mean keeping sanctioned prayer out of schools and religious monuments out of courts, it's a tired argument. That is not spurning God, that is keeping spiritual matters where they belong - in one's private life.

(There's getting to be a lot of Mikes in here!)

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.
--John Milton
